The place is very nice, the food is delicious, the attention is also very nice. The only thing is the serving time, too slow for getting the food. Recommendation, be prepared to spend sometime having dinner and enjoying the atmosphere. Not recommended if you are...More

Visited here February 2017 for Business dinner. We had Teppanyaki for our group and food was really delicious (chefs menu). For some reason the cook was really hassling a lot and seemed that he had just too much pressure. But the actual problem was serving....More

Convenient location, great atmosphere, friendly and attentive service, but, most importantly, really fresh, creative, delicious food! Sushi and sashimi is wonderful, and the grilled food looked and smelled fab too. Good value for money. We really enjoyed ourselves here and hope to be back soon!

The food is always good and has great atmosphere. It is good to reserve a table ahead since this restaurant books on the weekends. It is located right next to Leidsplein so close to the night life.
